I think Bergevin has been nearly flawless up to now but I will never understand the way he handled the Subban situation last summer. I think it was really really dumb. Signing your best player to a long term deal is an obvious move.
Oh god. I never understand this mindset of trying to lowball a player like that. If PK plays like a Norris, MB will be more than happy to sign him for what he's worth when time comes. MB stuck to principles and in business, you need to follow some principles if you want to command respect and credibility. Also, it's very important that the same "rules" apply to everyone. That contributes to the team spirit. You don't make an exception because this is PK Subban.
